The consequences of dangerous driving and speeding have been highlighted to students at Hydebank Wood College.
The new road safety initiative by the PSNI, NI Fire and Rescue Service and the NI Ambulance Service, highlights the stark reality of a serious road traffic collision.
More than 150 young offenders and female prisoners at Hydebank got to see up-close a demonstration by the emergency services at the scene of an accident.
Hydebank Wood College Governor Gary Milling said: “The Prison Service can play an important role in helping to educate all road users. Sadly, some young people will end up in Hydebank as a result of their actions while driving. But by supporting safer driving and promoting life-saving messages we are challenging those in our care to change, building a safer community and helping to reduce re-offending.”
